At the VU Amsterdam Faculty of Humanities we see the world around us through a historical, philosophical, and linguistic lens. We are a faculty with a broad, societal, and interdisciplinary profile. Our research has societal value because we involve multiple disciplines in the solution of the same problem. We consider this profile to be the plus of Humanities.
We educate historians, philosophers, art historians, antiquities experts, communication scientists and linguists who are willing to look beyond the boundaries of their own disciplines. What they have in common is that they play an indispensable role in interpreting our time and what makes us human. And through this interpretation, we offer a window into the past, present and future: a linguistic, philosophical, historical and creative window.
Humanities+ is also an interdisciplinary way of working, as students apply various approaches to complex issues: the so-called wicked problems. In this way, you sharpen your mind, make it resilient, and able to interpret the challenges of our time.
